It will be the function of this paper to explore the theory of the real estate mortgage as it is being used in the confused state of Ohio. The theories will be identified and defined. From this academic introduction, practical uses of the theories will be suggested. This will be followed by an analysis of Ohio case decisions since 1929. The conclusion of this analysis will be a determination of whether the state has been consistent in its reasoning and theory.
